  • Racial Paranoiaby John L. Jackson

    Basic Books 2009; US$ 22.00

    The Civil War put an end to slavery, and the civil rights movement put an end to legalized segregation. Crimes motivated by racism are punished with particular severity, and Americans are more sensitive than ever about the words they choose when talking about race. And yet America remains divided along the color line. Acclaimed scholar John L. Jackson,... more...

  • Being a Black Manby Kevin Merida

    PublicAffairs 2007; US$ 24.00

    Over the last 100 years, perhaps no segment of the American population has been more analyzed than black males. The subject of myriad studies and dozens of government boards and commissions, black men have been variously depicted as the progenitors of pop culture and the menaces of society, their individuality often obscured by the narrow images that... more...

  • He Talk Like a White Boyby Joseph C. Phillips

    Running Press 2008; US$ 20.00

    Actor and social commentator Joseph C. Phillips speaks powerfully about the topic of life as a conservative African-American actor, husband, father, and citizen. In today's political climate, with race such an issue, this collection of essays is not only timely, but thought provoking. Like Democratic candidate for President Barack Obama, Phillips... more...

  • Claiming Freedomby Karen Cook Bell

Stepto; Cheryl A. Wall

    Fairleigh Dickinson University Press 2017; US$ 109.00

    Crossing Borders engages with the emergent field of borders studies, particularly in relation to North America, South Asia, and the transnational spaces they continue to embrace. While multicultural theory tends to emphasize specific and individual cultures, border studies examines the intersection of cultures and the resulting effects. more...

  • Into the Fireby Robin D. G. Kelley

    Oxford University Press 1996; US$ 34.99

    When something goes from bad to worse, we say it "fell out of the frying pan and into the fire." This timeless phrases succinctly captures what has happened to the majority of African Americans since the 1970s. The civil rights movement of the 1960s brought about remarkable gains for most black people, and by 1970 African Americans were beginning to... more...

  • Break Those Chains at Lastby Noralee Frankel

    Oxford University Press 1996; US$ 34.99

    "We thought we'd break those chains at last," sang the slaves, hoping such spirituals would sustain them until the Confederacy surrendered and slavery was gone forever. During the Civil War, blacks served in the Union army and navy (although some fought for the South) and in Union-controlled camps, which harbored fleeing slaves. Not all slaves escaped,... more...

  • Strange New Landby Peter H. Wood

    Oxford University Press 1996; US$ 34.99

    For Africans who survived the trans-Atlantic journey and were forced to disembark at one of the many ports along the coast of Britain's North American colonies, what lay before them was indeed a strange new land. Although forms of bondage had existed in West and Central Africa long before the trans Atlantic slave trade began, human beings were rarely... more...

  • Though Justice Sleepsby Barbara Bair

    Oxford University Press 1997; US$ 34.99

    In the years between 1880 and 1900, the wonderful promise of a future of freedom that was made to black people by emancipation was broken. Federal troops were withdrawn from the South, freed slaves were not given the land promised them, white terrorist groups ran rampant, and the same defenders of slavery who led the Civil War against the North returned... more...

  • Let My People Goby Deborah Gray White

    Oxford University Press 1996; US$ 34.99

    In 1800, black voices began to rise against slavery. People like Gabriel Prosser and Nat Turner, attempted to launch slave rebellions against the system. Others, such as Maria Stewart and Frederick Douglass wrote books, pamphlets, and speeches calling for the abolition of slavery in the "land of the free." The voices of abolitionists, both black and... more...
